Short corset with straps


We're often asked about corset making.

Let's draft together the pattern of this small corset with vertical cuts and shoulder straps.

Start from a basic block with zero ease allowance and darts.

Step 1

On front, draw the underbust line and widen the dart by 1cm on each side.

Widen also the shoulder dart.

On back, draw the neckline and two vertical cuts.

Step 2

On both back and front curve the side seams inwards.

Draw the necklines, armholes and all the cuts as you see in the photo.

Redraw the front waist dart slanted.

Step 3

Trace the separate pieces and close the front original darts: you should get 3 pieces for front, 3 pieces for back.
